The idea of employing ex-offenders is noble, with benefits to businesses, individuals and society. We may admire companies that include ex-offenders in their team and may wish to do so ourselves. We may, however, find reasons for ‘parking’ the idea: now may not be the right time; we’re not able to absorb the extra responsibilities like bigger companies; how can we sell it to our colleagues, customers etc?
